The Croatian capital Zagreb is easy to impress visitors with its rich cultural life and fabulous architecture that reflects the city’s long history. Amazing ancient Roman remains can be seen in the nearby Andautonia Archaeological Park, where you can experience the past by walking the preserved Roman streets, tasting wine made using ancient methods, or smelling Roman soaps and perfumes.
The city of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, on the historic and political threshold between East and West, exhibits both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it spearheads. Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia. The cosmopolitan buzz of Zagreb will soon strike you. Everything is accessible on foot – from your hotel to the theatre. Visitors can enjoy a wander around the old Upper Town or through the bustling streets of the more modern Lower Town, which has not lost an ounce of its charm despite the eternal march of time.
After viewing the preserved part of the Roman city (Andautonia), 15 km from Zagreb, visitors can also see some of the most important stone monuments found in the Andautonia area, the parish church of St. Martin, and also walk through the village of Scitarjevo, where several typical rural farmyards with wooden houses are still preserved. There is also a small café in front of the entrance of the Archaeological Park.
